Herbal Medicines

Herbs are plants or parts of a plant that are used for their aroma, taste, or therapeutic properties. Chinese herbs are a type of dietary supplement. They are sold as tablets, capsules, powders, teas, extracts, and raw or dried plants. People use herbs to try to maintain or improve their health. Many people believe that products labeled as "natural" are always safe and good for them. This is not always true. Chinese herbs do not need to be tested like medicines. Some herbs like comfrey and ephedra can cause serious harm. Some herbs may interact with prescription and over-the-counter medications. If you are thinking of using Chinese herbs, first find out about it from a reliable source. Be sure to tell your doctor about all the Chinese medicines you are taking.
